Welcome to the latest edition of the number one Defense Career
Opportunities Newsletter, “DEFCON-1,” a networking newsletter featuring
job opportunities and career advice for you, the men and women of the
global defense, aerospace and security industry.  This is our first
newsletter for 2007.  I have big plans for the network this year, and I
hope you will help me by making the network grow in the number of
members served, and help this newsletter grow in the number of jobs
offered.

This is a cooperative network.  That means everyone's participation is
required to provide job opportunities to share.  When you learn about a
job opportunity in the defense sector, such as a position that comes
open with your company, you send me the title, organization, location,
and a brief description; link; or contact information, and I'll share.

Your company's jobs can be listed here when you share them with me. 
Please ask your Director of HR to send me your company's most pressing
job hiring priority each week.

I never give out, rent, or sell my list, and neither does Topica.
